Owl-inspired cake

surprise bday cake

When I ordered this birthday cake at Rocca Ristorante, the restaurant located at the 8th floor of Torre Venezia Suites, I specifically requested the personnel to place an owl cake topper. (N loves everything with owl design). I thought they would place an owl candy topping but this one is better and really creative despite its simplicity. They placed a printed owl design to form number 8 plus a single candle (to create number 18). (Thanks to the restaurant staff who ordered this cake from Red Ribbon.)

This cake is called Tiramisu Meltdown. So far, it’s one of the best cakes we’ve tasted from Red Ribbon.

Cake details based on RR’s website:

A heavenly two-layer cake of choco chiffon and cream cheese filling with a hint of coffee liquor.
